Initial Projection: Summer '09
Current Projection: Before Thanksgiving
Odds, On Time Arrival: 10 to 1
Eater Projected Opening Date: 12/10/09
Following last week's explosion of big debuts, the fall restaurant opening season is officially in full swing. The Perbacco guys—chef Staffan Terje and owner Umberto Gibin—are still hoping that Barbacco will join the fray before the winter months take over. The latest ETA for the more casual enoteca/smaller plates offshoot of neighboring big sis Perbacco is currently looking like the latter half of November. The interior remains very raw, but compared to the way it looked two months ago, there's been a lot of progress down on California Street. Take a stroll around in the photo gallery above.
